• Fast & Furious 6 Leaves Box Office Competition in the Dust


    LOS ANGELES (CNS) – “Fast & Furious 6″ sped away from the competition at the North American box office over the weekend, while Will Smith’s sci-fi epic “After Earth” battled mediocre reviews to open in third place, according to final figures released today.

    “Fast & Furious 6″ collected $35.2 million between Friday and Sunday to remain atop the box office for the second week in a row, according to Hollywood.com Box Office.

    A drama centering around a group of magicians, “Now You See Me,” had a better-than-expected opening weekend, collecting $29.3 million and pushing its way into second place ahead of “After Earth,” which opened in third with $27.5 million.

    “Star Trek Into Darkness” continued to show its muscle at the box office, earning another $16.8 million in its third weekend of release. The film has collected $181.5 million so far.

    The 3-D animated adventure “Epic” took fifth place with $16.6 million.

    Rounding out the top 10 films of the weekend were “The Hangover Part III” ($16.4 million); “Iron Man 3″ ($8.4 million); “The Great Gatsby” ($6.5 million); “Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani” ($1.6 million); and “Mud” ($1.2 million).
